Come backs

Just don't do it. That's surely the lesson we learn from sporting comebacks. Lance could only manage third in the TdF - a creditable showing, but hardly the position he was used to. With luck, Michael Schumacher will be similarly unable to reprise his form of years gone bye. As Kevin Mitchell wrote in Sunday's Observer, come backs make for a compelling spectacle, albeit one that is often not to the credit of the protagonist. Perhaps Damon Hill, who Schumacher pushed off the track in one of the worst display's of unsportmanlike behaviour I have ever seen, will enjoy next weekend's schadenfreude. The rest of us should just contemplate a modern memento mori. When it's time to go, just go.
